Here's What the 'Friends' Cast Looked Like 25 Years Ago -- and Where They Are Now!


It's hard to believe it's been 25 years since Friends made its debut on Sept. 22, 1994. 

Even though the show is aired in syndication, well, everywhere these days and the NBC sitcom made the cast A-list stars, there's still something about taking a look back at what the cast looked like before they were household names. 

Though they all had acting gigs before Friends, most were failed or short-lived sitcoms and commercials -- and even a cameo in a Bruce Springsteen video! 

But in 1994, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer were relative unknowns. Season one is the ultimate '90s time capsule, with the then-twenty- and thirty-somethings wearing some amazing fashion relics of the time.
